Training and Certification

The Realization Process Teacher Training consists of three separate certification programs: Meditation, Embodiment, and Subtle Self Work (spiritual psychotherapy). The main Realization Process practices are taught in all of the programs, but each one also includes specific practices and information relevant to its particular focus.

Each training program is taught in a format of two five-day modules, except for the six-month teleconference training.  A certificate is given at the end of each program, authorizing you to teach or practice professionally that aspect of the Realization Process. (The training programs do not authorize you to certify new teachers.) If all three programs are completed, full certification is awarded. The programs can be taken in any sequence.

In the Realization Process we open to the pervasive space of fundamental (nondual) consciousness through inward contact with the internal space of the body.  Fundamental consciousness is the basis of our individual authentic being, and our oneness with all life.

This training can help you develop fluidity, ease and balance, and awaken the clear light of consciousness throughout your whole body. It can help you to become both more empty and present, at the same time. 

The Embodiment training includes the main Realization Process attunement exercises, as well as a sequence for contacting and moving through fundamental consciousness in the internal space of the body. The practices can help you experience internal unity, self-possession, increased vitality, increased contact with yourself and others, and the integration of awareness, emotion and sensation.

The training also teaches how to apply fundamental consciousness to healing physical injuries, chronic tensions and structural imbalances.

This training is appropriate for anyone who wants to become more whole and open. It can be of particular use to psychotherapists and bodyworkers who want to refine their healing abilities or to dancers and martial artists  who want to refine their movement.  When we embody fundamental consciousness, we perceive, understand, touch, move and express ourselves with the whole breadth of our being

Above all, this is an opportunity to deepen and stabilize your realization of nondual reality.

Spiritual Psychotherapy (Subtle Self Work)

Applying Nondual Consciousness to Personal and Relational Healing

This teacher training program teaches how to apply the Realization Process practices to personal healing and maturity, relational healing, and nondual realization. It also teaches specific attunement exercises for recognizing and releasing the emotional wounds, defenses, and compensatory attitudes that are bound in the body and conceal our authentic nature.

The Realization Process practices can help individuals discover a dimension of themselves that has never been injured, that is deeper and more subtle than even the most strongly held negative beliefs, depression, or anxiety. At New York University Medical School, two pilot studies showed that the Realization Process practices reduced symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and helped to elevate mood. They also help develop sensory and emotional resilience, grounding and self-acceptance. 

This training includes the relational aspect of the Realization Process. Participants will learn how to remain in nondual reality while listeningto each other's psychological process, how to attune more precisely to that process, and how to discern subtle patterns of openness and defense in the body. They will also learn the Realization Process practices for couples, to help them balance separation and intimacy, to relate to each other with less projection, and to experience the mutual transparency of fundamental consciousness.  The realization of self-other unity deepens the capacity for empathy and intimacy, helping us connect more fully in relationship, without losing inward contact with ourselves.  This experience of our true boundaries gradually eliminates the need for defensive, constructed boundaries.

In the Realization Process, the radical openness of nondual realization is based on deep contact with the internal space of one’s body and access to the “wisdom channel” in the subtle core of the body. We therefore uncover a qualitative, authentic experience of ourselves as individuals at the same time as we transcend our individuality.  When two people attune to nondual awareness together, they experience mutual transparency: a single expanse of awareness pervading them both as a unity. They also experience resonant connection between the essential aspects of their being, such as intelligence, love, and physical sensation.

Most approaches to nonduality focus on breaking through fixed conceptual patterns.  However, the fixations that obscure nonduality are not just conceptual.  There are also rigid holding patterns throughout one’s body, limiting our capacity for emotional responsiveness and physical sensation.  The subtle core of the body is disentangled from these rigidities.  When we access it, we can let go of our fixed patterns of self and other, so that they actually dissolve.  Then we are open to the present moment, effortlessly, throughout our whole body.

This training focuses on the Meditation aspect of Realization Process. Participants will learn how to help people overcome specific obstacles to nondual realization, and how to accelerate results in meditation for both beginning and advanced students.  Along with the Realization Process attunement exercises, various forms of meditation, such as resting in nonduality, mindfulness, absorption, deity visualization, and one-pointed concentration will be taught, with discussion of their applications to personal and spiritual issues.

The training is also an opportunity to deepen your own nondual realization, through intensive practice.  The Realization Process exercises will be combined with periods of sitting, standing and walking meditation for cultivating stable nondual realization, subtle breath, subtle perception, and openness throughout the whole body.

Testimonials from people who have completed the Realization Process training:

“The Realization Process trainings have been absolutely transformational for me, with the work touching nearly every aspect of my life. Personally, I am much more embodied and present, comfortable in my own skin in a way that I have never been before. I feel that I am constantly moving forward in my development and, dare I say, self realization. Professionally, Realization Process informs all the work and practices that I do, from trauma counseling to QiGong exercises, giving me greater access and facility. Inter-personally, Realization Process allows me to interact more authentically and deeply, while maintaining my own boundaries. I can't praise this Work enough." ~ Henri Tischler, Brooklyn, NY

"Realization Process has helped me in many ways. I am more awake, grounded and available for living. The exercises have worked remarkably over time to free me from limitation. I bearly recognize who I was. It's a dream come true to enjoy life, myself and others more and more." ~ Kathleen Donovan, Woodstock, NY

I originally came to Realization Process work in search of a meditation group. I immediately liked Judith’s guided meditation, focusing on the internal space of the body. The work is helping me to become more grounded and focused in daily life and relationships. I use the exercises both to go deeper into my solitude at quiet moments and to be more present and stable when I am with other people. My sense of my self and the world is opening. I find that the blend of psychological work, meditation, and physical movement has helped me to integrate different parts of my life into one developmental path. Judith is unique in her ability to convey the concepts of Asian nondual philosophies in a secular way to Westerners. ~ William Persky, Larchmont, New York

“Judith Blackstone's Realization Process is a real gem. The process has given me the gift of myself in ways that I never thought possible. Through this process of deepening my own realization of who I am, my world is more friendly, my relationships more
vibrant, my work more satisfying. This work is a gift to the planet and a good fortune to anyone who practices it.” ~ Grant Tyler, Connecticut

“After a short advaita-type opening my ego reasserted itself with a felt physical and repressed emotional component. My practice at that time had been largely mind-based. Realization Process is providing the framework and tools to access the unprocessed “stuff” to rebalance as a complete human being. This is done in the context of deepening spiritual contact throughout the system -- embodiment. I live life with more ease each day.” ~ Patricia Osbourn, New Jersey

"When I first was introduced to Judith's work some years ago I felt an immediate resonance. I was looking for a daily meditative practice that worked for me - and focusing on the body felt like a way in. Since that first introduction, and reading her books, I did two weekend workshops with Judith, and now the Embodiment aspect of the Realization Process Training. The training considerably deepened the experience and effects of the practice for me. After a relatively short time of experiencing the benefits of doing the exercises I began to bring aspects of them into my work as a teacher of Creative Speech. My love of the exercises, the way in which they continue to help me in everyday life, and now the beginning of a new work combining Realization Process with Creative Speech, brings me great joy and gratitude." ~ Philippa Timewell, Scotland, UK
